Primer Pals are soaking up summer

Listed below you will find the Primer Pals soaking up summer. Thank you parents for sharing these photos. It is wonderful to add these photos to our newsletter.

Our next newsletter is slated for late August. During the second half of summer I encourage you to keep up your reading routines, practice tying shoes, try out a new recipe with your child but mostly important, rest, have fun and gear up for a fabulous school year.

Health information forms

Have you sent in your health information forms? If not, please visit the virtual nurses' station to print out the forms and mail them to Nurse Carla. Completed forms are due by July 18.

Uniform spotlight

During August, the Primer students will transition to the elementary uniforms. I have added some helpful tips you might want to consider before August 26.

ESD Spirit Dress Days

Throughout the school year, students will have the opportunity to show their ESD spirit on ESD spirit dress days. If students are participating in an ESD spirit dress day, they may wear an ESD shirt with appropriate pants, shorts or skirts instead of their school uniform. Tennis shoes of their choice are best on these days for both recess and PE times.

The ESD Eagle's Nest located on the Upper Campus across from the Dining Commons has an array of ESD tops. The Eagle's Nest will reopen in August. Please let me know if you have any questions.
